Description of problem:
When I mount a sftp:// volume using Nautilus' connect to server, i am
asked for a password. Then, if I check the "save in keyring" checkbox,
it still asks for my password when I try to access the server from a
new session.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a sftp:// server using "connect to server" from Nautilus
2.Open the newly created "volume"
3.Anter the password
4.Check the "remember password using keyring" checkbox
5.log out
6.log in
7.Open the sftp:// volume again

Actual Results:  Nautilus asks for the password again.

Expected Results:  It should have kept the password in memory, and not
ask for it again.

Additional info:

I tested it using Fedora Core 2 test2

Yes, the sftp method doesn't support gnome-keyring atm.
Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2004-10-15 10:38:49 EDT
2.8 supports this.
